Game_Breaker's comments:
Fact: Words With Friends is the most popular word game for the iPhone to date.

Fiction: WordSnake is better.

Well, I hope to swap those two statements, at least in your mind.

WordSnake...Words Without Borders is an up and coming board game on the iPhone. It takes Scrabble in a whole new direction, making it more challenging and certainly more colorful.

Words With Friends is just Scrabble. I will admit, the online gaming is an added plus. WordSnake will launch its Pass & Play and Online versions later this year.

Words With Friends is Goliath. WordSnake is David, except his name is Elmer.

For now, I'd like you to watch the two videos and decide which of the two you think is more creative and fun to play.

Anyone else having problems since the last update? It keeps crashing my iPhone 4 - screens goes wonky and it reboots. It's unplayable now.

Only worthwhile zynga property and they broke it...
